Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals :Ch-3. Part - 21.





Chapter-3. Rama – The Apotheosis of Human Perfection ( Sri Ramanavami )


Part-21.



This seems to be a necessary outcome of turning one's face towards God.

"Yasyaham anugrihnami tasya vittam haramyaham."

"When I want to shed My grace on any person, I deprive him of all his pleasure­centres," is a famous statement reported to have been made by Lord Narayana Himself as recorded in the Srimad Bhagavata.

What are our pleasure-centres?

We know them very well.

The greatest fortress of our pleasure is our own personality-consciousness, our egoism.

We have many other pleasure-centres, no doubt, but the greatest among all of them is what we call, in common parlance, Izzat, dignity of personality, self-respect.

This self-respect was unknown to great masters and saints.
